If You Were a Contraction......Freebie

This is just one in a series of books designed to reinforce language skills. Cute pigs dance throughout the book as they review contractions. Be sure you don't miss the last page. You will find an index, glossary, and extra websites students can use for extra reinforcement.

Students match up the words that make contractions in the first part of the activity. Once they have completed that, they categorize the contractions.

I love, love, love your comments! Several people have suggested I start putting my work on a commercial website so that teachers can buy them. I have been lucky enough my entire teaching career to have caring, helpful teachers guide me. This is just paying that forward! Your comments are the only payment I want.
